Acclaimed Syrian American rapper/poet Omar Offendum is bringing his love for hip-hop and Arabic poetry to college campuses across America with this very special performance-lecture. He will be joined by Chicago-based Palestinian Oud virtuoso Ronnie Malley. These multitalented musicians offer a unique perspective on Arab American artistic expression, weaving stories of the past, present and future as they trace the influence of Al Andalus and Arabic-speaking peoples on music and culture from New York City's "Little Syria" neighborhood to the birth of California Surf Rock. A short student open-mic will open the show, and food will be provided beforehand.
